The Champaign County Visitors Bureau represented the community at the AAA Great Vacations Travel EXPO in Columbus on Feb. 8-10. The event featured over 175 exhibitors with information on attractions and events from destinations around Ohio and throughout the country. More than 11,700 attended and received information on Champaign County. This year’s EXPO was one of the highest attended in recent years.
The Visitors Bureau committee members were there to hand out brochures of local destinations and attractions, dining guides and event listings and to speak with attendees about the county. Visitors could sign up for a chance to win a “Champaign County Getaway” with an approximate value of $300. The winner of the getaway was Maggie Duffy.
